    It's really amazing that he was even allowed to do shots as a rookie. Hampton and McClendon must have been injured.

    What's really amazing is that the Steelers FO actually let him have his own car as a rookie. Now we know why they won't let rookies drink and drive....

    It's rather easy for a 110 pound woman to get a little tipsy during a night out at the bar. But how much alcohol does it take to get a guy who weighs somewhere between 350-400 lbs. to blow nearly a .2? A mind-blowing amount of booze would be required, right? Wow...

    Also a mind-blowing amount of stupid. What I'm waiting to hear is who was he out with. I find it surprising that a young man in a new town, part of a professional football team just went out alone to get hammered. To me, it would seem like some of his teammates would be with him and if so they weren't taking care of each other.

    I'll just be interested to find out if he was out with other Steelers.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323

    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside

My BAC won't be double the limit, but enough that I don't want to be driving, even though we'll be only 4 miles form home.

    This situation is beyond insane. No wonder he was struggling with the playbook. He's dumb as a bag of hammers.

    IQ dude. You're comparing >>120 to <<80.

    WOW! Serious trouble. But I hope the steelers get this young man REAL help. You guys throw him under the bus but let Harrison go. It happens. Let Ben go twice. And to non steeler fans he is a rapist. Overheard it at then titans game. This is a young man who needs help. It is sad he was not thinking about the impact his drinking would have. But most people that have a serious problem it is not till after the fact it hits home. Lets see if he learns anything before we condone him.
